Notes: If making dressing up to 1 week ahead, cover and chill. (You can substitute 1 1/2 cups purchased dressing if desired.) To crisp romaine, trim root ends off lettuce, separate leaves, rinse, and drain well. Wrap in towels, slip into a plastic bag, and chill at least 30 minutes or up to 3 days. Up to 4 hours ahead, arrange vegetables in a bowl; cover with a damp towel, invert a plastic bag over vegetables, and chill.

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • In a small bowl, mix sour cream, blue cheese, lemon juice, Worcestershire, garlic, and pepper.

  • Stand romaine leaves, tips facing up, snugly in a bowl that is one-half to three-fourths the height of the romaine spears. Trim and discard most of the leaves from radishes, leaving one or two small ones attached. Scatter radishes or cherry tomatoes around lettuce.

  • Serve vegetables and dressing together, so guests can dip lettuce leaves and radishes or cherry tomatoes.
